The big news this week is that Ancestry.com has released six new states!
“These states will join four other searchable states and Washington, D.C,” said Ancestry.com spokesperson, Matthew Deighton. The previously searchable states are Delaware, Maine, Nevada, and (the biggy) New York. These eleven make up more than 39 million records of the 132 million total records.
According to Deighton, Ancestry.com will finish the project this year and the records will remain free through 2013 on Ancestry.com.
